A wanton and adulterous woman repeatedly spurns the love of her youth. Her betrayed and grieving husband offers forgiveness and seeks to restore the intimacy of their first love. Bold imagery indeed for telling the story of God and his people. Bolder still when God calls a prophet to enflesh this divine suffering and redeeming forgiveness in his own marriage. Yet this remarkable story sets the stage for Hosea's message of God's enduring love, his righteous judgement and his persistent offer of reconciliation. This commentary explores the historical, cultural, literary and theological dimensions of the book of Hosea. Distilled from a career of biblical scholarship, theological reflection and masterful teaching, David Hubbard has been studying, teaching and thinking about Hosea for a long time. He frankly admits he can't imagine himself "as a human being, let alone as a believing person, without the deposit of Hosea's political, moral and spiritual insights." Find out why. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Hubbard (B.A., B.D., Th.M., Ph.D., D.D., L.H.D., Lit.D.) served as professor of Old Testament and president of Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He died in 1996.Review:
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."--Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."--Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."--D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."--Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary
